Taiwan’s national broadcasting regulator has ordered a local TV station to cut its broadcast time for Korean dramas in a bid to encourage development of local content, officials said Tuesday.
Upon the request of the Taiwanese National Communications Commission (NCC), Gala Television (GTV) will reduce the proportion of South Korean shows on its soap opera-dedicated channel starting in June, NCC officials said.
South Korea’s television shows and pop singers have become increasingly popular in neighboring countries, such as Japan, China and Taiwan, a phenomenon called “hallyu.”
However, anti-hallyu sentiment has recently been sparked in Japan and Taiwan where South Korean culture has become common
fixtures in TV, news, magazines and popular music.
